This next card is another I did in some of my Christmas card classes. The bauble is from "Delightful Decorations", and the sentiment is from "Contempo Christmas", and this was the first time I discovered that our scalloped oval punch works beautifully layered onto the Decorative Label punch - really pretty!
I never used to be a very "ribbon-y" girl, but I'm finding I'm using a lot more now than I ever used to. I had to laugh at the horrified looks on the faces of the ladies (and gent) at my classes when they realised they were going to have to tie a bow, because I used to react in exactly the same way - I never tied ribbon bows 'cause they always looked DREADFUL! They're still not perfect (as you can tell from the photo - this one isn't my best), but my lovely upline, Bekka, showed me a really simple technique and I was amazed - all of a sudden I could tie bows that actually looked like bows. Stampin' Up! is about sharing, and that's one of the many things I love about it, and if you'd like to get over your bow-phobia (there's probably a proper word for that) then get in touch and I'd love to show you how.
Back soon with another card for you to look at. Thanks for looking!
